The next Louisville Life, hosted by Candyce Clifft, features Saunders Springs Nature Preserve in Radcliff, The Kentucky Center’s 30th anniversary, an interview with Kentucky’s Humanitarian of the Year, and WLOU radio station. The program premieres Saturday, Nov. 9 at 7:30/6:30 p.m. on KET and Thursday, Nov. 14 at 7:30/6:30 p.m. on KET2.
Louisville Life travels south to Radcliff to the Saunders Springs Nature Preserve. Located on 73 acres, it’s a popular destination for local families, mountain bikers and nature lovers. Along with its biodiversity, the preserve has a rich history of providing water to Fort Knox for more than 40 years and serving as an encampment for both Union and Confederate troops during the Civil War.
Next, Louisville Life looks back at The Kentucky Center as it celebrates its 30th anniversary. The center has been an important fixture for the arts in Kentucky, and this segment helps celebrate its strong tradition with prominent members of the community and highlights of past performances.
Also featured in this program is WLOU, which has been broadcasting on AM throughout Louisville and beyond for more than 50 years. Louisville Life goes behind the scenes of Kentucky’s first African-American owned and operated radio station and learns of the recent efforts to include an FM channel, as well.
In the studio, Clifft talks with Mark Hogg, CEO of WaterStep, who is the Kentucky Humanitarian of the Year, an honor presented by the Muhammad Ali Humanitarian Awards.
